Longtime head-Mekon Jon Langford recently released a solo record called Old Devils on Chicago's Bloodshot Records. He recently invited photographer Jim Newberry into his art studio to perform a song from that record on camera. The song is "Strange Ways to Win Wars" and joining Langford are Jim Elkington (of Horse's Ha and The Zincs) and Tawny Newsome (of Girl Shy). Big thanks to Jim Newberry for making this video's exclusive premiere on WBEZ Music.
